Blooms from Japanese Gardens

THE Japanese garden ideal is a difficult ideal for the occidental mind. Flowers in a Japanese garden are a matter of accident, for with rare exceptions they happen because the tree or the shrub that bears them has a desired form of limb and branch.

Why not Grow Your Own Celery?

HAVE you ever had the delightful experience of growing, in your own garden, "honest to goodness" crisp, tender, toothsome celery?

Plan Now for Winter Bouquets

WHEN Jack Frost sounds the knell of the garden blooms, we need not feel that the house shall be left flowerless all winter. It can have cheer and gayety even tho it cannot boast of fresh blossoms daily. We sigh as we look at the spaces once filled with bowls of lilac, peonies, cosmos and delphiniums. At first glance there seems to be nothing to fill these places; for once we have had floral decorations in our home the feeling of welcome seems somehow lacking without them.

Homes of Famous Americans

THE last frontier is fast slipping into the horizon of the past; indeed, the American frontier and all that it has implied in our imaginations and in our history, is no more.

When Next You Move The Furniture Around

MANY times I have chuckled to myself over the story of the woman who was always changing the position of her furniture: "One evening a neighbor who dropped in for a visit exclaimed, 'Why, you've moved your piano again!' To which the man of the house replied. 'Yes, again! And again!

And, naturally, the effective arrangement of shrubbery planting about the front helps to show off the house to excellent advantage, incidentally emphasizing the invariable importance of attractive grounds in the making of a home genuinely admirable.

To Keep Out Flowers

EVERYONE struggles to make cut flowers last as long as possible, whether they have been purchased from a florist or gathered in the garden. We hear a great deal about hot water, salt or aspirin, and many people may wonder whether these really do help or not and when and how they should be used.

July Garden Reminders

JULY is the month when the plants need special attention as to water. Any check in growth of vegetables and flowers means a certain percentage of loss in fruit or bloom.

ACROSS THE EDITOR'S DESK

JULY means the vacation month for many of you, a time in which you can get away from the daily grind, an opportunity to forget the petty cares that infest every job and every business in the world. Like all the rest of you, nothing thrills me more than to load up the old car, or jump on the train, and hie myself away for two or three weeks in search of contentment and honest-to-goodness fun. Along toward the end of the vacation, tho. I alwavs commence wondering about things at home.
